i currently have the H1N1 flu, its not fun just like the regular flu only with vomiting(for me, can also have diarreha). Im taking dr prescriped tamiflu and a steriod pack along with otc tylenol every 4 hours. Bed rest for 5 days, and pretty much just being sick you dont wanna get out of bed anyway. Im 35w and 5d. so im under dr advice that if its gets hard to breathe or i get chest pain to go to the er. other then as long as i take my meds my little girl and i will be just fine! I was going to get the shot to protect the both of us and my DH was going to too, but our hospital havent recived them yet! But my advice is if you can get the vaccince, and wash your hands frequently especially after being in public or meeting someone. Have your family do the same. and if you or a family member does get sick, go to the dr asap and stay home for till the meds are done. Best of luck!
